Handmade with Love: Sublime Leather Bags by Erin Templeton

Born and bred just outside of Vancouver, BC, Erin Templeton takes pride in creating exquisite leather bags and accessories by hand. With her namesake shop located in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Chinatown district, her dream of having a vintage clothing studio coupled with her own one-of-a-kind designs has been realized.

A lifelong love for vintage informs Erin’s designs, and their presence in her studio serves to inspire her. Her beautiful leather handbags and accessories are the focal point of the shop, with several hand-picked vintage clothes and jewelry serving as the backdrop that dictates her design sensibilities.

Using new and recycled leathers, all of Erin’s pieces are lovingly created with minimal hardware and sturdy construction. It is her hope that each piece can be modified and adjusted to the taste of each person and can therefore be a lifelong companion in their wardrobe.

Along with her shop in Vancouver, Erin’s designs are featured at many boutiques throughout Canada. You can also purchase her beautiful designs online, directly from her!
